This is a color postcard from 1919 of bridges across water at Modesto, California. One bridge is for the Southern Pacific Railroad and the other is a county bridge. The card is postmarked 1919 and is written in German....I think. Anyway, if you want to the juicy tale you will have to translate. The card is published by the Pacific Novelty Co. of San Francisco.
Condition is good with the dog ear bends that come with forcing into album corners. A little wear around the edges is evident, but nothing major. The back is remarkably white for the age of the card.
